Hello and welcome every body!
I know this may be a little late but permit me to start by saying Happy New Year!
After a prolonged holiday I'm finally opening the Web Income Journal's doors for year 2011! Well I never planned to stay away this long but things just turned out that way. Anyway, it's great to be back.
Putting The Holidays To A Fruitful Use
For me the holidays were really great. It afforded me the opportunity to spend some rewarding time with my family. Besides, I was able to use the time to reflect on my web business and plan for the months ahead. Like I wrote in the post, "As 2010 Closes and 2011 Unfolds: Believe It Can Be Better" I believe 2011 will be really great.
From my reflections I've come to realized that there are many areas of my online business that needs improving upon. You may want to know that my vision when I started online was to "plant some fruitful online income trees" that will afford me the opportunity of working less than 4 hours a week. However, in the past few months I've spent more time running my online business than I spent with my family!
Besides, my day job is taking a greater part of my man hours. (Yes, I'm not into online business full time for now, though that is my dream.) Now combining a day job and my online business is not funny at all as it is taking a toll on the home front. This is one of the reasons why I took the holiday period to reflect on how to improve things so that I can have more time for other things like my family.
No, I don't intend to renege on giving my best on this blog. What I intend to do however, is set in place strategies and systems that will free up more of my time. So far I've planted a few niche 'seeds' which I intend to water to maturity while waiting for 'harvest time'. Like I said before, the idea is to build a business that require my working less while earning more!
A Few Changes With More To Come
Let me use this opportunity to talk about some of the restructuring that has taken place right here on the Web Income Journal. I'm hoping all of these will help with the overall improvement of things so that we can better serve you.
1. A New Design:
As you can see already, I've decided to throw up a few tweaks here and there on the blog design. Of course, at first look the new design is not far from the former one. That is because I really did not want to depart too far from what I had before. Only thing is that I had to fix up a few things here and there that were not to my taste in the former design. Anyway I expect your feedback on the blog's new look. Simply post your thoughts in the comments below.
2. Guest Posting:
Finally, I've formally opened the WebIncomeJournal.com to guest posts. Of course I've featured a couple of guest posts before but I accepted them after being contacted by their authors. Now I'm openly inviting guest bloggers to gladly send in their articles to be published on the Web Income Journal.
I've decided to do this because I've come to realize that covering the wide topic area which the Web Income Journal aim to cover is not something one person can cover. Of course, you know I cannot be an expert in every aspect of online business. That is why the past articles published on the Web Income Journal have always leaned towards blogging, niche marketing and SEO, areas I can confidently talk about.
But the purpose and vision of the Web Income Journal is not just about blogging or making money blogging but about using the internet to build profitable businesses that will help you earn a living online. In fact, in our About Us page, I clearly stated, that the Web Income Journal is "an online content publishing platform" and that "we’re dedicated to publishing wide ranging income generating ideas and opportunities on this blogsite." I don't want to loss sight of that neither do I want to do anything short of that promise. As a content publishing platform the Web Income Journal must and remain your one-stop content site for earning a living online.
Having admitted therefore that I'm not an expert in most areas that the Web Income Journal will be covering, I'm inviting other bloggers covering any area that has to do with making money online to publish their guest posts here. For details on how to publish your guest article with us click here.
3. Top Commentator Reward:
After much consideration, I'm introducing our top commentator's reward package. This was discontinued about 3 months ago when we moved to this new domain. But after much consideration I've decided to bring it back. However, instead of the review post and linkback for the top commentator of the month, the new reward will be a month free 125x125 banner ad for the top commentator. This will however formally start from the month of February. So keep the comments coming. And remember this is a "dofollow" blog and so you have everything to gain leaving your comments here.
Ok, so that's it for now. Watch out for more improvements and changes.
It's time for your say: What do you think of these changes and what area do you think I can improve upon? Post your comments below.
